Golders Green Jewish Cemetery
The Jewish cemetery in Hoop Lane
|Location||Golders Green, London Borough of Barnet|
|Owned by||West London Synagogue|
It was opened in 1895. The cemetery is divided into two parts, the West Side (used by West London Synagogue), where the graves are marked with an upright stone, and the East Side (used by the Spanish & Portuguese Jews' Congregation). The East Side is a traditional Sephardi cemetery (one of the few left in London) and the gravestones are laid horizontally. Just inside the gates is a small building, with two halls for burial services, and a drinking fountain.
